BIM is more relevant when it is integrated with other business processes and the purpose of this conference is to provide you with insights into valuable business uses of BIM so that you can experience increased productivity gains and get the real payback of true integration.
Insight Information has assembled a faculty of North American industry experts in the use of BIM and IPD, who will cover a broad range of topics to assist you in understanding how highly BIM-enabled, collaborative projects can transform project delivery.
Gain valuable information on:
•Advanced uses of VDC to improve outcomes
•Evolving business challenges for design teams
•Model-based estimating and the cost-consultant’s role
•Dispute resolution and new clauses in legal contracts
•Future trends in software and integrated delivery
•BIM, GIS and facility management
•Risk management – leveraging BIM to reduce costs
Case Studies include:
•BIM vs Non-BIM Projects
•The Hewlett-Packard Data Centre
•Krembil Discovery Centre, University Health Network
•The Model Says It Should… Integrating BIM with Onsite Construction
Our keynote speakers have varied and extensive BIM expertise. Richard Lowe, (Duane Morris LLP, Philadelphia), led the national USA effort to create the ConsensusDOCS BIM Addendum. He will share insights from American experiences in collaboration and the legal implications of BIM and IPD. Derek Cunz, a Top 25 Newsmaker in 2006 recognized for his contribution to the design and construction industry, will provide insights into how Mortenson Construction advances uses of VDC to improve project outcomes. Dan Gramer specializes in expanding the role of BIM in the field and will share how Turner encourages participation from designers and subcontractors. He will also provide valuable insights into model-based estimating. Kimon Onuma, a leader in the BIM world and creator of BIMStorms, will demonstrate how you can maximize the value of the “I” of BIM.
